President Nixon ad- dres&es the nation tonight to explain his surprise decision to provide U.S. military support for a South VielnamtM.- thrust into Cambodia In a test of congressional reaction, the House scheduled a vote today on an amendment by Htp Ogeri Jtod. R-.V V . prohibiting the L'nited States from sending ground troops into Cambodia A lull-scale airing of the administration's controversial move appeared certain when the Senate — and its Foreign Relations Com mil tee came- back after a day's recess. Nixon !v« his nationally televised address for 8pm 1'rt-ss Swretary R/jnald L Ztegler Mid the speech will relate to Cambodia and U S forces in Vn-tnam Xn-glcr said a Omtedjan request for djrect US arms aid remains under corisideration Members of txjlh parties joined in protest Wednesday after the decision was announced first in Saigon, then in Washington by the Pentagon, to provide advisers, air support THE TEXAS CAMPAIGN Campaigning neors end and other aid for the South Vietnamese action. Top Senate Democrats, including Sens. Mike Mansfield. Edward M. Kennedy, J. W. F'ulbright. EdmundS. Muskic, and George S. McGovern, denounced it as a move to widen the Vietnam war. Senior Republican members of the Foreign Relations Committee joined in. Sen. George I) Aikcn of Vermont, a veteran GOP leader, cautioned the action might have an "extremely bad" effect on GOP political prospects m the November elections. The chairmen of House and Senate armed services committee, Rep. L. Mendel Rivers, D-S.C.. and Sen. John C. Slennis, D-Miss., backed the move. But Stennis added he opposes massive military aid to Cambodia. Announcement of the new U.S. move came during the Senate recess and two days after a near-unanimous Senate Foreign Relations Committee strongly opposed both American aid to the new Cambodian government or help for South Vietnamese action against Communist forces in Cambodia.

STRANGE ANIMAL SIGHTED IN AREA U.tTK — Mrs. Don Hamilton of Old Angleton Road thought she was seeing things Tuesday evening when she observed a strange animal in her front yard. Her first thought was that it was an anteater, but she now believes that the animal was a coatimundi. A coat i is a South American animal that is related to the raccoon family. It has a long tail, and a long, flexible, piglike snout. .Another report of the strange-looking animal comes from Josephine Martin, who said that she observed, the coati being chased Monday by some boys in Richwood. The animal was also observed by Fran Shanks on Tuesday It is possible that the animal was a pet of a Lake Jackson family, but no one knows for sure. Dr. Robert Schwebel, a local veterinarian, said that the animal, commonly known as a coali, was probably purchased in a pet shop, then it either escaped or was released. New bond rating approved In advance of a major bond sale, the Velasco Drainage District has received word of an improved bond rating. The rating has been changed to "AA" from the previous "A" status. This will affect the $2 million in bonds now up for sule. according lo R. N. Eddleman, fiscal agent for the district. Eddleman represents Underwood, Neuhaus and Co. Bids on the bonds will be opened at the Drainage District's meeting Monday night. The interest rate expected is between 6 and 6.5 per cent Money from the bond sale would meet the forseeable local costs during the coming year for storm protection work performed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The bond money would then be reinvested in certificates ol deposit. These would have varying maturity date* coinciding with the expected schedule of meeting the local expenses of the federal project. Republicans stress voting importance I.-U'KSON — The challenge the winner of the paign activity, the fund- called fnr h.>n»r ™,«. n ..,ixi^- i,,a,,». /... _ I.AKK JACKSON — The importance of voting in (he Kepublican Primary was stressed here last night as Hvpublicaiis rallied to hear their candidates and launched Koberi U. "Bob" Kennedy's race for County Treasurer with an impromptu bit of fund-raising. Kennedy, unopposed in the GOP Primary Saturday, will challenge the winner of the Democratic Primary next (all Few issues developed in the one contested race at the county level, us Bob Lindveit and John Kuler outlined their qualifications for Republican County Chairman. Lindveit. the incumbent, emphasized his county-wide experience, long-time cam- paign activity, the fund raising barbecue held last year and a new plan he has developed for appointing delegates to the state convention in what he feels will be a more representative manner. Euler. Sweeny precinct chairman, pointed out that his precinct carried for both Nixon and Paul Eggcrt and called for belter communications among Republicans and with the community-at-large, through a party newsletter and public relations programs to make the party a force for good government. In other contested races, the meeting heard from Norval Hears, local campaign manager (or G»rge Bush, and Mrs Jack (Mary) Oarretl of Danbury, who is seeking the office of State Executive Committeewoman for the 17th Senatorial District. It was Mears who emphasized the importance of a good turn-out in Saturday's GOP Primary. He described Bush as one of the best qualified and most admired men in the State of Texas and said his supporters "can hardly wait to g« things going" after the Primary — but added that first Bush must be assured the nomination. A member of the audience asked whether Bush might "actually lose" if few Republicans vote on this race Saturday. Mears expressed confidence, but said Bush's State Headquarters U con- cerned about the very light absentee vote so far. Mears said that while this part of the state U all very strongly for Bush — there was no one present to speak for his opponent, Dr. Robert Morris — his opponent is campaigning strongly elsewhere and might pick up soon American Party support.
